NEW FROM THE 2018/19 WINTER SEASON: 6-seater chairlift Gampen E4

In 1988, the 4-seater Gampen chairlift was the biggest construction project of theSilvrettaseilbahn AG. Back then it was the longest chairlift in Austria, and it was erected in a record time of only 5 months. After 30 winter seasons and approx. 13 million rides, the Gampen chairlift was overhauled in the 2018 summer season and exchanged for the most modern 6-seater available. 

The lower terminus (1,924 m) is located in the so-called Fimba, with the chairlift leading up to one of the highest and most picturesque spots in the whole ski area, the Palinkopf, via 21 pillars and 25 pipe columns.

Design

As was the case with previous models, the newest generation of the Gampenbahn boasts an elaborate design throughout – starting from the entrance barrier to the comfortable cushioning. The backs of the seats have different animals that are endemic to the surrounding mountains printed on them. Each chair is unique. 

World record

Witha 924 m drop, there is no other chairlift in the world that negotiates a higher difference in altitude than the new 6-CLD/B Gampenbahn. In order to be able to do so, a rope of 58mm diameter and a weight of 65 tons are necessary. 

Comfort

The highest possible comfort and a silent operation are what turn the new Gampenbahninto a first-class ski lift. The new high-tech chairlift boasts several obvious improvements:

  • Ergonomically shaped seats
  • 520 mm wide, heated seats
  • Optimised design in terms of safety
  • Improvedsafety bar
  • In order to offer a silent operation and the highest possible comfort to our guests, the facility is extremely quiet and low in vibration
